Flare up…or not?!?

Hi Team,
I’ve been off work with a bad chest infection and conjunctivitis for the past week. I got some ointment for my eye and after a couple of days using it my eye worsened and became extremely red, swollen, painful and my vision was blurred (in my right eye only). I panicked the conjunctivitis had encouraged a flare up in my eye. I took a trip to eye casualty yesterday afternoon and they confirmed it was just a reaction to the ointment and my nerves were okay. I find on a regular basis I’m constantly thinking…’is this MS or something else?’ Every time I drop something, I’m always thinking ‘did I drop that because I have MS, or did I just drop it?’ It’s such a tricky illness!

Hi @katrinaf93 it’s all too easy to blame everything on the ms but we can get ordinary things wrong with us as well! 😜

@katrinaf93 , totally agree with @grandma. Not everything is MS, but you need to know your MS body first. And, that takes a bit of getting used to.
